Looks like an eclipse after all?

Anyway, I like it.

I'm gonna assume that is Moiraine and Nynaeve, so someone did well with their choice of faction!

Moiraine and Nynaeve? It looks like the woman in the yellow has shorter hair, but she is wearing yellow for her Ajah.

I'm going to cry, or at least choke up, in every chapter when reading this book.

I totally thought Alivia was going to be there, but apparently not. Holy spoiler!

Has someone made a countdown timer for the release yet?

The left arm is behind the rest of his body, just to tease with us, I think.

never figured that Moiraine would actually be one of the ones using Callandor.

guess the difference in OP-strength isn't that important when using it?

EDIT: oh, and yeah. loved the cover.

probably just because I'm looking so much forward to the book

Unless Nynaeve does a miracle healing and restores Moiraine's full power

Note to Rand: if you hold up your sword in a guard position, hold it in such a way that it actually protects you. The way you're holding it now an attacker could take a sizeable chunk out of your arm without even touching your blade.

Question for Rand: if you only have one hand, what do you need three* swords for?

* Or two swords and a knife. I'm not entirely sure whether the third is a shortsword.

Awesome cover. It looks like Rand is marching off to the Pit of Doom while Moraine and Nynaeve are chasing ?

Dreamspike? Could have been the Dragon scepter except Semirhage destroyed. And it probably would not have been much use in this situation anyway. The sword must be Justice.

Nyneave had her braid burned off in her testing.

You're assuming that's a defensive posture. He could be using it to light the path ahead (not wanting to weave the OP to make a light, or something).

Also, if anyone is questioning whether one of the women is Nynaeve, one of the sketches has a ki'sain.

Wait... Moiraine? I don't see her kesiera at all.

And the woman in the yellow dress seems to have lighter hair. I'm tempted to say Elayne and Egwene...

That is FREAKING AWESOME. I will *fully* admit to being a) really concerned about the new artist, and b) really sad that the last cover wouldn't "match" the rest. Well, fears abolished. That cover is epic.

I will caution people that covers are almost never spoilers - they are teasers. It looks like the women are Nynaeve and Moiraine, and the description certainly pushes us that way, but it's just a picture guys. An awesome, well done picture, but a picture nonetheless. The real book is inside that glorious cover.

Personally, I'll just enjoy the taste of what's to come!

I think that the sword is Callandor, considering the fact that you can see through it. Grig's idea does make sense, though. Of course, in that case, he should've held the sword a bit differently, so that the light did not shine in his own eyes.

and Nynaeve isn't as teeny tiny as Harriet made me think
